A Weekend Away For Less!


Even the most simple of vacations can be expensive. When you start adding it all up, the cost rises until it seems as though it’s going to be one expensive little trip away. But we’re talking about going abroad there. If you go abroad, you’ve got the flights, hotel, car parking, spending money etc. If you go for longer than a week, you would definitely need to get your savings up as quick as possible. However, a weekend away doesn’t necessarily mean hopping on a plane, you can easily have a nice weekend away right here! All you have to do is pack the car, find somewhere that you want to explore, and go and explore it! Here’s how you can have a weekend away for less.




Free Locations

There are plenty of free locations dotted around that will give you the most perfect weekend away. No, we’re not talking about a hotel that’s going to be giving out rooms for free, we’re talking about getting out in the open and back to nature. The best places to stay are the ones that will just allow you to pitch a tent, or even just park your van or can to spend the night. Whichever one you do, you’re going to want to fill it with comfort. One way of doing that is by staying dry and having a nice shaded outdoor area to relax in. You can shop here for awnings that will do just the job for you. If you’re going to choose a tent, go camping in luxury by making sure you have a double blow up bed mattress, a nice duvet to keep you warm during the night, and plenty of snacks and drinks in case you get peckish during the night. Hopefully there will be toilets close by for you to refresh yourself in. Just make sure you check that before pitching up for the night. The best locations are the ones closest to the beach, a lake, or even in a forest if you’re looking for some real adventure.

Finding Things To Do

There’s plenty of things to do that will hardly cost you a penny, especially if you’re going to go camping. A lot of the campsites that you might pick will be close to adventure parks or businesses offering things such as zip wiring, kayaking, and other fun things. Always do you research beforehand and make sure you’re picking somewhere with plenty to do, and always try and find vouchers from the internet of things you would like to do.

Money Saving Hacks

The things that we’ve listed above are money saving hacks, but there’s a few extra things that you can do to shave off those pennies. The first is making a habit of camping rather than hotels. Camping for just one night can give you just as much fun as a hotel would, but you’ll be paying far less! You should also try and take picnics and snacks so you’re spending as little as possible whilst you’re actually out there.
